Paint up a storm down west

Tenants and business owners in Bandon and Kinsale are being encouraged to pick up a paintbrush under new initiative.

The annual Cork County Council Painting, Signage and Improvement Scheme has been launched by Bandon-Kinsale municipal district.

Tenants or owners of buildings have four streams of funding available to them, which cover costs of materials, labour and sign replacement. Applications are also available on a full street basis, which will prioritise works on 10 adjacent buildings on one street.

The scheme aims to promote regeneration and business growth in Bandon and Kinsale town centres and complement other council development initiatives, such as the €2 million upgrade to Kinsale Library which was awarded funding from the Rural Regeneration and Development Fund in 2018.

County Mayor Cllr Patrick Gerard Murphy spoke highly of the scheme. “One of our greatest amenities as a county is our picturesque towns and villages. The paint scheme has led to excellent results and iconic streetscapes throughout the county. I look forward to seeing the people and businesses of Bandon-Kinsale working together with their municipal district office to build upon the past success of this wonderful initiative.”

The deadline for the receipt of applications is Friday 7 June. Application forms are available on corkcoco.ie.
